I just moved from Windows to Endeavour OS. My laptop is old and has a broken wifi adapter, so I must use a wifi USB to connect to the internet.
The USB works fine on Windows 10 but it is not registered by Linux. I searched for am official Linux driver but none can be found.
Can I fix this problem to get it working?
Thank you very much for the help.
Can you check whether your USB driver is visible by running the following command :
I tried this. It only shows the webcam, linux root hubs, intel rate matching hub. No Totolink devices found.
Edit: Oh, i tried plug unplug and it shows 1 more: Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 802.11ac NIC
Did you ran it after connecting your USB driver ?
Yes, it is showing Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 802.11ac NIC
I found an article which is discussing about the related issue. Check whether it helps.
Meanwhile, I will try to find more informations.
In this article, the author had discussed about installing driver based on realtek.
Thank you so much. I’m checking the steps here.
Let us know about the results after you go through the process.
If it shows the adapter then run
Edit: If we determine what chipset it has because it also could be something else. If it is an rtl88x2bu then you can try the AUR package.
yay -S rtl88x2bu-dkms-git
